RE: Emma Schuch.
I wish I could do more photos, but with age comes new aches each day. I have family histories that I can match up for others. My mother was a big family history buff, not only with our family, but the entire area.

Thank you.
I googled and got this page first =
Then looked up his parents here on Findagrave and discovered that Orson was Moses Stafford's brother. I have been in contact with Robert Webb, the director of the Primitive Baptist Library in Carthage, IL, and have received an obit for Eld. Christopher Stafford from him which has since been put up here on Findagrave. But I will look up the book.

Orson N. Stafford
Since you wrote the bio for Orson N. Stafford (21275), do you know the years that he was the editor of the Illinois State Journal newsletter? I believe this fellow might have been the one who published an article about and a letter from my 3rd great-grandfather (50298335) while he was in the House of Representatives in Springfield. It seems he might not have liked him from the tone of the article, however, a Moses Stafford purchased his land when he left for the Kansas Territories in 1855. Grandpa also preached in the church organized by an Eld. Christopher Stafford just before the group of six families left for K.T. I'm thinking Orson is also a part of that family?

Robert Lang Wilson #5519743
Thank you for confirming my suspicions. I had him added to a misc. virtual cemetery, but the memorial holder could not confirm for me that he was the one I was seeking. Now off to find Daniel Stone. By the way, my 3rd great-grandfather (50298335) served with Lincoln in the 1840 State Legislature.

Thank you for the tombstone photo attempt. Even though I'm disappointed that there's no stone, your time and efforts are greatly appreciated nonetheless. I'm sorry to be so late with my thanks - unfortunately life just gets in the way sometimes.

The Long Nine
I'm looking to complete my Long Nine virtual cemetery. I'm still looking for Dan Stone and Robert F. Wilson. Most of the rest were buried in the Oak Ridge cemetery. Have you seen their tombstones in your walks?

Good grief, yes, thank you for noticing that! I got that from the journalist and you're the only person who's noticed that all these years!

Thanks BjJ. That gives me peace of mind to know that it is a natural process and not vandalism.

RE: Samuel True #21771793
Thanks for checking, Samuel might be buried in Maine. He died in Springfield, but the body I believe was ship off to Maine.

Memorial# 139427327 & Memorial# 132806112

Thanks so much for the information on how to get the plot locations at Oak Ridge and for the photos of the markers.

I'm a bit concerned about Memorial# 132806112 for Fredrick Peter Baker. Could you tell if the dark stain on the marker was weathering or vandalism?

Thank you for the help, tips, and photos!

Find A Grave Memorial# 161362068
Dear BjJ:

Thank you for your Find A Grave contributions.

Robert Warren Becker researched the family genealogy since 1947. Uncle "Bob" has the Holtje "Hulcher" family history to 1772 and his wife's "Rennick" family history to 1596.

Over Memorial Day weekend, I cleaned fourteen tombstones at Oak Ridge Cemetery with soap, water, and a wash mitt. Subsequently, I took pictures of my family's tombstones with my GPS enabled camera.

I created a Find A Grave memorial for Robert Warren Becker on April 19, 2016, the day Robert died. I thought I expressly up-loaded five pictures to his memorial.

Therefore, I am disappointed that you added a picture of Robert's tombstone to the memorial I created.

John B.
